In the highly competitive AV industry, education, training, and certification are important to the success of both individuals and companies. Like a professional license, certification instills confidence through reliable evidence of a critical set of knowledge and skills. Acquired fluency and expertise in any field saves valuable time and money, and ensures a higher level of customer service and satisfaction.
The Extron certification program is for AV professionals who wish to advance their knowledge of AV system technology, design, and configuration. The program consists of online and instructor-led training components and allows system integrators, installers, and consultants an opportunity to learn new skills, validate their skills, and gain a better understanding of the latest technologies and solutions.
This program is ideal for individuals who will be required to install, configure, and commission Extron XTP Systems.
There are no education prerequisites. A strong working knowledge of digital AV technologies and successful completion of the Extron AV Associate certification program is recommended.
The XTP Systems Technician certification program is available through a combination of online course material and instructor-led training. Once enrolled, students are required to pass online exams for Digital AV Technologies, XTP Systems Control Software Orientation, and Proper Termination of Cabling for XTP Systems. Successful completion of the exams is the first step toward certification. Online materials, which include videos, short quizzes, and technical documents, allow students to study for the exams at their own pace. To achieve certification, students must also attend an instructor-led course and pass an Extron-proctored, two-part exam consisting of a written portion and a hands on component.
